The Obici Healthcare Foundation is a new, private, independent entity unrelated to any other health organization. Established in 2006 when the former Louise Obici Memorial Hospital was merged into Sentara Healthcare, assets of the first Obici Foundation were transferred to the new Foundation and more than tripled due to the merger agreement.

The Foundation is governed by an independent board composed of citizens living in Suffolk and in surrounding communities in the previous service area of the Louise Obici Memorial Hospital. It is the Foundation’s goal to continue on the philanthropic journey started by Amedeo Obici when he built a hospital to honor his wife's memory and to serve the healthcare needs of the surrounding community. The Foundation's mission today reflects this same desire as we strive to address the unmet needs of the medically indigent and uninsured and to support programs which prevent illness and disease.
